I wouldnt want to go anywhere near a lunatic with a machete.
Ah the old saw.
Schizophrenics do NOT have multiple personalities. That is a completely different condition. Schizophrenia is a disease of the chemistry of the brain. Someone like this li character must have an extreme form of the illness, if that is what it is.
The doctrine of 'spread the other cheek.'
If you are a psycho you should be executed for murder same as any other killer
But the point is that he doesn’t realise that. People suffering a schizophrenic attack are responding perfectly rationally to an circumstance that is simply untrue.
It’s not just the Kennedys who get away with murder.
All judges are going to stand before THE JUDGE the day they die and account for their decisions and receive the consequences.
It’s a side effect of the “run and call 911” mantra that has been preached for years.
That and a healthy dose of cowardice.
The idea that someone is not guilty by reason of mental state is a gigantic load of crap. That should not be an option in a court of law. Instead, the third option should be “guilty, but mentally incompetent”, and the sentence of the length appropriate to the crime, but with a specialized facility. What’ll happen when this POS is out and about again? It won’t necessarily be the bus next time. I just hope someone is around to save his next potential victim, and puts the criminal out of OUR misery in the process.
